I originally wasn't going to write about this product because I was under the impression the Laura Mercier Metallic Eye Creams were not in production anymore. While they don't seem to be selling them on Sephora, they are available on the Laura Mercier and Nordstroms website. So yay! I don't feel bad writing about it!
I first heard of these in a video from Lucy Garrick on Youtube where she recreated a Keira Knightly look with the Laura Mercier Metallic Eye Cream in Burnished Copper. At the time the Ebay seller I was eying (I ain't like customs/shipping prices of Nordstroms/Laura Mercier) only had the shade Gold, so I went for that one. I've since shamelessly purchased more shades.
The color reminds me very much of Woodwinked from MAC but Gold is a touch less yellow. It applies like a dream. I love that it doesn't dry too fast which gives me a chance to work with the product. I use it over a primer (I always use primer, no matter what) and it stays on all day, without creasing whatsoever. I also like layering it with powder shadows on top to give it more dimension, not that it really needs it.You only need a tiny little of this product in order to get an opaque finish. While some paint pots (like MAC or Maybelline) never quite give me an even finish, this is a breeze to use. I doesn't take much to make this product "work" so to speak.
This little tube retails for $22 USD and I think that it is well worth it. If you take a look at these lovely swatches from Karla Sugar I'm sure you now understand why I need/want them all.
